Today is the 129th birthday of the 20th Century’s most determined revolutionary. Leon Trotsky helped to turn the world upside down, or rather right side up. The ruling class often attempts to derogate their enemies by making them kitsch. What they don’t get scares them so they, bully-like, belittle. And how could they ever get a person of the imagination and conviction of Lev Davidovich? There is nothing kitschy about the real Trotsky. As a man deeply involved in the struggles of his time; wars, revolutions and counter-revolutions, Trotsky, along with all those revolutionaries who have come before us, helped shaped his present and ours and continues to struggle along side of us today and tomorrow. A deep bow of respect and the greatest gratitude.
Leon Trotsky, Presente!
